We were really hoping to avoid baseball puns, but here’s the problem: The MLB app really does knock it out of the park.
If you’re a baseball fan, MLB should absolutely be your first stop on the App Store. For more than a decade, it’s been an essential repository of stats, standings, and sabermetrics. But it’s also a great way to preview the day’s matchups, catch up on news, and follow games via live pitch tracking and high-resolution ballpark renderings. (You can even make your favorite team’s logo the MLB icon on your home screen.)
MLB lets you watch the action as well. With an MLB.TV All Teams subscription, you can stream all 162 of your team’s games on your device (as long as they’re out of market—the app can’t fix blackout rules).
Or, if you’re more old-school, listen to radio broadcasts from both home and away markets, as well as a Spanish broadcast, for less than the cost of a bag of peanuts. That’s not a joke. It’s literally less than peanuts. (And Cracker Jacks.)
The best part: If you have a question, you can tap the microphone in the top right corner of the screen and go to it. Who’s the all-time home run king? Who’s starting for the Yankees tomorrow? Did the Cubs win today? The game summary: MLB will do everything but put relish on your hot dog.
